Sept. 1, 2003 at 11:35 PM

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Jeff Kent hit his 10th career grand slam and drove in six runs and Wade Miller allowed four hits in 6 2/3 innings Monday as Houston routed Los Angeles, 10-1.

The Astros had a season-high 18 hits and climbed back into a tie for first place with St. Louis in the National League Central Division.

Kent got the Astros going with an RBI double in the first inning, then single in a run in the third for a 3-0 cushion. He capped his big night in the ninth with his first grand slam since Aug. 9, 2000.

Staked to an early lead, Miller (12-11) won for the fifth time in six decisions, taking a shutout into the seventh before allowing a solo homer to Alex Cora.

One day after celebrating his 35th birthday, Dodgers starter Hideo Nomo (15-11) was tagged for four runs and nine hits in five innings.
